The best bras are essentially a second skin. They’re worn every day, morning to night, with a rare balance of comfort, support, and style. Between new lingerie brands entering the market and tried-and-true favorites improving their size ranges, that trifecta is easier to find than ever before in bras for large busts.
Whether you’re looking for a high-impact sports bra, a lacy bralette, or a smoothing minimizer bra, “Swap out the frills and excess to focus on simple, modern, and timeless materials that you need and want for everyday,” CUUP director of fit Tania Garcia says. High-performance details like power mesh, memory foam, and padded underwires will gently lift and shape your chest; three-part and five-part cups are also key for a supportive, wear-all-day-fit in sizes DD and above.

“The more comfortable the bra, the more supported, confident, and sexy you will feel,” Garcia says. Whether you’re getting dressed for a special occasion or just to lounge on the couch, there’s a soft bralette, sheer balconette, or everyday T-shirt bra that’s comfortable and high quality.

Finding the best bras for large busts can be a struggle. Whether you call it voluptuous, well-endowed, big-chested, or busty, having big boobs can be a blessing and a curse. As someone whose cup size has more than two letters in it, I love the body I’ve been blessed with, but finding a bra that actually works for my heavy boobs is no easy feat. And no, I don’t want to be forced to wear a bra that looks like it was a hand-me-down from my grandma. Thankfully, brands are catching wind that the best bras for big busts can be cute, comfortable, and supportive. And I went on a hunt to track them down.
When it comes to choosing the best bras, there are a few qualities I consider nonnegotiable. For starters, the bra needs to have substantial lift and support. As far as I know, there’s no such thing as a DD bust that’s lightweight. Second, it has to offer proper separation. If I wanted a uni-boob, I’d wear a sports bra every day. Next up, coverage. I want clean, smooth lines, minus the bulge. And finally, the bra has to be attractive. Just because I have a large bust doesn’t mean I care less about aesthetic.
So why not treat yourself to a comfortable bra that truly fits? Plus, you know your underwear drawer has been begging to be cleaned out, so a little Marie Kondo action couldn’t hurt. Ahead, find the best bras for large busts, DD and up.
